Those trays I did for my Etsy shop at Christmas were a resounding failure, so I’ve been redoing them. This one started as a doodle whilst watching TV and, well….here’s what I did:-
I started my doodle and realised that it was big enough to cover the base of a tray so I cut it to size and continued to draw this pattern….
Whether you can draw or not, you should try this type of doodling, it’s a bit like the colouring- in craze, your mind can wander but I find you do rather drift off into a pleasant frame of mind rather than stressing about anything. It could be just me but give it a go… it’s all just circles and little loops nothing too tricky.
I then decided to add some pink circles…
and this is the final piece… I stuck it to the base of the tray and varnished it.
So now that’s done I decided to replicate the design on a couple of glasses. (I’ve got a new camera since I took the picture above, I can assure you that the colours are definitely the pinks and not the purple colour it’s taken on here!)
I used my glass paints and a sponge dobber to splodge the two shades of pink on the glasses. I let the first colour dry before adding the second.
Once dry I added a little detail with a black glass felt tip pen. The glasses were then baked to fix the colour.
That’s it, it’s going back on my Etsy store – wish me luck?
